Gold-colored rims on BSM

Something else than silver, black or gunmetal. Was spotted yesterday in Berlin.

I try to use this emoticon judiciously but here I have no choice.



I know there's a word for this ... wait a minute ... it'll come to me ...

oh yes.

I think a darker shade of gold would have worked a lot better

Hehe,

I've passed this particular 1M a couple of times here in Berlin and although I'm not a huge fan of the golden rims I must say it is definately one of those "they do look better in real light compared to the pictures!"

Cheers

I love it mate! Everyone is doing black wheels.... That's so common this looks cool... Yes I did have visions of a screaming chicken on the hood and a young Sally field in the passenger seat. What's wrong with that? I think bronze might look a bit better but I like it. Hat off to you.

Ps. Anyone have pristine trans am with screaming chicken and they don't like it, sell it cheap to me.

I had no idea that Flavor Flav bought a 1M and moved to Berlin.
